Hulu Adds CBSN & ABC News Live Ahead of Election
The channels from CBS and ABC are the network’s attempt to reach cord cutters on new platforms. While consumers could have already watched these channels for free directly on CBSNews.com, ABCNews.com, and their respective apps — this now brings them to the unified Hulu interface.
ABC News Live which launched in May offers 24/7 programming including breaking news and event coverage. The channel does include commercials, but does promote ABC programming.
CBSN which launched in 2014 offers live news coverage and long-form documentaries. They’ve also launched a live morning show, CBSN AM, which airs daily from 7-8am ET.
